Upper School

Academics

The breadth of program is extraordinary for a school the size of CCA.

Our Upper School curriculum has an intentional focus to integrate content and character with a challenging academic program. Our courses put an emphasis on the application of knowledge. It is not enough to memorize a formula in a science text. One must understand how to use it to solve real problems. The study of historical events is only useful if serves as a wellspring of knowledge that leads to a broad, deep perspective with which to evaluate events in the world. Literature speaks to the perennial questions of what it is to be human.

Please explore our Upper School course of study. You will see that it represents a breadth and depth of learning opportunities that one would usually associate with a much larger school. We offer all this, along with the personal attention that only a smaller school can provide. The combination of academic rigor and shared purpose makes CCA a great place to work, study, learn, and grow.
